SINGERS and young musicians will pack the Lawrence Batley Theatre later this month for a concert which promises to raise the roof.
Get out the flags, warm up those vocal chords and join some 200 performers.
They will be celebrating the power of music in a Last Night of The Proms style event on November 12 organised by the Friends of the LBT.
A similar concert sold out last year and with such a success on their hands the Friends just had to do it all over again.
They have been working with young musicians on fundraising concerts for a number of years and are delighted to be welcoming back Kirklees Schools Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Thom Meredith.
Prepare for a celebration of traditional British music, to the accompaniment of equally traditional, Proms style flag-waving.
Musically speaking, there will be plenty of familiar pieces, including selections from the British Sea Songs plus Land of Hope And Glory and Rule Britannia.
Almondbury Junior School Singers will add their voices to the evening, along with the soloist, soprano Judith Sims.
And the Friends will be giving a warm welcome to Colne Valley Male Voice Choir, who are also conducted by Thom Meredith.
The concert, in aid of Kirklees Theatre Trust, will be compered by Dr Simon Lindley and look out for yet more young musical talent, courtesy of soloists Lorna Bowers (soprano) and flautist Rebecca Robinson.
Thom’s son, Harry, will be playing percussion in support of the men from Colne Valley.
